A Very Vegan Friday

I landed at JFK Thursday evening and spent the night with family friends in the Lower East Side. Since the weather in NYC was so beautiful (and I desired to delay my homecoming) I spent the day in the city on a progressive vegan meal tour that extnded from 2nd St to
Lincoln Center in the 60’s.

To start off I had vegan BLT bagel w/ a schmere of tofu cream cheese along with a soy latte. Two Thai meals later I landed back at the home of the family friends to sample their vast wine selection (I recommend the malbec, but then I always do).

Today I take the bus home to face a messy apartment ravaged by roofers who did their dirty deed in my absence.

Soon I will resume normal blogging (whatever that means). Marvin tells me he has a video about the US Presidential election. seems Mr. Bloom has taken over this blog again gathering many more comments than I do. But I am so modest, I don’t mind.

    No way could I see Marvin endorsing Romney. I’m guessing he’s very very uncomfortable with the whole Mormon angle. Huckabee seems the logical choice, but who knows? I’ve learned to expect the unexpected from Marvin. I’m just hoping he doesn’t drop any bombs that might throw Super Tuesday into total disarray and confusion. This election year has been wild and woolly enough already!

    Hi, Peterson!

    I’m assuming it was specifically vegan wine? (I was in the checkout at the Whole Foods recently and conversing with someone behind me who told me that most wines aren’t vegan because there’s some animal protein that is used somehow at some point during some filtration process or other. I forget the details. She was buying some bottles of wine from some vineyard that deliberately doesn’t use whateveritis.)

    Alas Brian, I am not. I’m back home in Hartford, but I hope to get to NYC sometime next week or the following week. Wanna meet up for coffee or a nice vegan meal?
